Rose to recognize Littauer Hospital

GLOVERSVILLE – Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home will be recognized with a rose on the Donate Life Float in the 125th annual Tournament of Roses Parade today.

Littauer partners with the Center for Donation & Transplant to facilitate life-saving organ and tissue donations.

CDT is sponsoring a rose on the Donate Life float in recognition of Littauer’s support of donor families through participation in the Donate Life Flag Program. As was done over the past four years at Littauer, in 2014, a flag will be flown at the hospital after every organ and tissue donation case, a news release said. The flag then will be given to each donor’s family in honor of their loved one.
